The word "rooksha" refers to dryness. Rookshana karma induces dryness in the body. This is required whenever there is increased oiliness and stickiness in the body.
Udvarthana is included in the panchakarma treatment in ayurveda. For this treatment massage therapists use herbal powders. Massage is done in the seven positions in opposite direction to that of the hair follicles. Dry herbs are cleaned, dried and powdered as per the instructions of the physician. This powder is then heated mildly and used for massage in upward stroking. The deep massage improves the blood circulation, opens the channels and effectively stimulate the breakdown of the stored subcutaneousfat by improving the basal metabolic rate.
The patient is made to lie on the treatment table. Two Ayurvedic therapists would then apply special medicated powder prepared from various herbs all over the body and gently massage in a particular pattern. The treatment duration would be from 30-40 minutes daily and the treatment period would range from 14-28 days depending on the body condition.
